Inspired by the William Jefferson Clinton White House scandals, a pulpy page-turner of tabloid intrigue.

The steady rise and stunning fall of a wealthy Cincinnati family is brought to life at the height of Monica Lewinsky scandal. Self-made businessman Griffin Jewells Saunders II is a handsome black embodiment of the American dream. A lucrative business alliance with his Clinton cabinet-appointed half-brother easily ensnares in the Republican attack machine. Griffin's frantic efforts to evade imprisonment and public shame push both him and his family to the brink: his attention-desperate bisexual teen son becomes the unwitting victim of a gay pornography ring; his local celebrity self-absorbed wife plots to use a blackmail scheme to catapult to the national stage.
GJS II twists and spirals, in prose by turns lyrical and coarse with political incorrectness. At times, it's hard to know whom to root for, but the read is always riveting. 

Urban. Literary Fiction. Explicit.

About the Author:

Shawn Stewart Ruff is author of the novels GJS II (2016), Toss and Whirl and Pass (2010), Finlater (2008), winner of a Lambda Literary Award for Debut Fiction; and the novella One/10th (2013), the first of ten small entwined works inspired by W. E. B. DuBois' The Talented Tenth. He is also editor of the landmark anthology Go the Way Your Blood Beats (1996).

Review:

"Shawn Stewart Ruff weaves a story that out scandalizes 'Scandal.' With deft characterizations and vinegary dialogue he captures what happens when an unstable, upper-crust, Black family starts to crumble in the shadow of the White House. It's hard to know who to root for except maybe for Ruff and his next adventure."  -- Jewelle Gomez, author of The Gilda Stories

"Ruff's third novel is a high-stakes drama complete with sex, pornography, tragic deaths, blackmail, and dramatic TV interviews. The novel's grander pulp-fiction instincts will also likely appeal to some readers." -- Kirkus Reviews

Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.5in. x 1.1in.Self-made Griffin Jewells Saunders II is a man of means: covetable connections, immense wealth, a glamorous TV-celebrity and fashion icon wife and five telegenic children. The sterling qualities that have made this handsome black embodiment of the American dream a Cincinnati mayoral prospect prove his undoing.

As the Monica Lewinsky scandal engulfs the White House, the brothers turn on each other, convinced an FBI sting is afoot. Distrust balloons and bursts . . . and the fallout sweeps Griffins family into the maelstrom in this thrilling page-turner of tabloid intrigue, high-fashion passion and murder.
